You're in an all-girl band,
Your parents understand but you don't care.
I'm an undercover cop,

Everything's on hold within our evolution
You're my alternative girlfriend.
There's nothing left that won't cross over
Last night we slept on the lawn,
Back to the dream I dream to leave.
A worn-out metaphor,

Everything's been sold to others' revolutions
You're my alternative girlfriend.
There's nothing left that won't cross over
You live above your dad's four-car garage,
If I pull up in a you-Haul, pack up quick,

I love you and now you cannot pretend.
